Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX

I have been working at Bazaarvoice full-time

Pros

New pay structure is over-market for Engineers
Many smart people with whom to work

Cons

New products fail to impress
Growing discord within R&D
Poor technical leaders who play the blame game by pointing fingers at the engineers
Poor follow-through on company wide or intra-departmental initiatives

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get back to the culture that made BV great. The new sweat-shop, blame game culture is pure poison and has many engineers looking for the door.

    I have been working at Bazaarvoice full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Vacation, benefits, free snacks, smart people to work with. Can make some good friends in this company.

    Cons

    Hard to get a raise, especially if you're in implementation. TS/DS doesn't get a lot of respect they deserve and need. Can be stressful to separate work and home life. Expect to work weekends.

    Pros

    -Fast-paced environment
    -(still) a number of good quality people
    -Reputation

    Cons

    -Senior management is completely disconnected
    -New Execs/GMs don't fit the culture - one in particular seems incapable or unwilling to make necessary adjustments, and is difficult to be around because he's not particularly friendly
    -Pay is below average and raises are hard to come by unless you're on the Executive Leadership Team
    -All good requisitions are filled externally
    -TOO MANY PEOPLE
    -Stick around long enough and you become a manager, even if you don't have anyone under you or you haven't produced anything of value

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to get our house in order! The exodus is beginning and will only get worse come August when the long-termers depart...Some of the leadership should step aside and let other, more experienced business leaders take over and turn this company into a true success.
